Lacri-lube Eye Ointment EQUIVALENT 5g
Lacri-lube eye Ointment is used for dry eye conditions. Lacri lube eye ointment contains white soft paraffin, liquid paraffin (also known as mineral oil) and lanolin alcohols (also known as wool alcohols). These ingredients produce a transparent, lubricating and moistening film on the surface of the eyeball. Lacri-lube eye ointment provides soothing relief from the symptoms of dry eyes, such as soreness, irritation or a gritty sensation. These may be caused by your eye not producing enough tears to keep the eye moist, or by things such as certain medical conditions or treatments. The ointment also helps protect the eyeball and can thus be useful for people who suffer from recurrent corneal epithelial erosion. Lacri-lube eye ointment is particularly useful at night as it remains in the eye longer than drops.
Due to the unavailability of LacriLube ointment, we have sourced the ONLY alternative product for you. You will not receive lacri-lube. You will receive our alternative product which is:
